Our Story


Once upon a radical time in 1985, five young craftsmen and women agreed that the future of Colorado should know its history. Their beliefs define BFA, one of Boulder’s longest-running local businesses and the only furniture company around to make what we offer:


1. East Coast techniques, to worship timelessness and stretch the craft to its highest possible form

2. Rocky Mountain Soul, to hold steadfast the health of our Environment above all other values

3. Boulder sensibilities, to unite our love of simplicity with expressive personality

4. Childlike enthusiasm, to instill in every piece of furniture the hallmarks of joy and passion


We (Lee and Hannah) came from serious furniture backgrounds, and met in the shop. Today we’re planning our life together, and choosing to keep things small and local despite cheaper ways to do business. It’s a unique idea in an industry of mass production and passive purchases, and it’s why we love what we do: your new rocker or dining table will be among the few antiques from our time.


It is our mission to spark satisfaction – to create beautiful, utilitarian furniture by heeding nature’s signals, leading to the restoration of a more sustainable world. In a deliberate and personal process, we seek to define new balance in the meaningful object.


Commitment to the highest standards of sustainability is essential to us. Because we can, and because we must.
